This video showcases the promising results produced by the Boston Summer Learning Project on reversing summer learning loss and building skills for success in school and life.
Boston Summer Learning Project
Boston's approach to summer learning addresses the knowledge, skills and experiences young people need to acquire in order to succeed in school, college, work and life. Schools draw on the strengths of teachers and leading program providers to provide a full-day, integrated learning experience.
The Achieve, Connect, Thrive Framework
The Achieve, Connect, Thrive framework has been used in Boston, MA to unite stakeholders from across the youth-serving field around the skills young people need to succeed. Derived from the best of the youth development field and afterschool program providers themselves, the skills in the framework are those that research from a number of fields, including education and developmental psychology, suggests are important for success in school, college and 21st century careers.
